“Worth the" look see"”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Nice job done recently to restore the site. Informative, even kids could be interested. Go during the Holidays when the decos are a nice addition. Always good to see & hear the local history!

“For those who want a bit of education”
Reviewed 19 August 2012

It was a fun short visit. I personally, would rather be outdoors so being in an old house and school house were interesting, but not unlike others I have seen in the past. To be in Dennis, though, it is worth a visit since Dennis is named for this preacher. A town needs a church before it can be called a town, so this was the preacher's home. Won't take long at all. They do have offerings of spinning wheels, etc on some days which would require more time spent. Lovely guides in the house.
